HENSOLDT delivers more air surveillance radars to Ukraine
TRML-4D high-performance radars detect targets within a radius of 250 km
Taufkirchen/Germany, 18 January 2023 – Sensor specialist HENSOLDT is supplying two more of its TRML-4D high-performance radars to strengthen Ukraine’s air defence. As part of an order worth a two-digit million euro sum, the two radars will already be delivered in the next three months. At the turn of the year, HENSOLDT had already contracted four TRML-4D radars as part of the IRIS-T SLM air defence system for Ukraine.
Thomas Müller, CEO of HENSOLDT, said: “This contract conclusion is not least due to the excellent operational results that have been reported back from the deployment in the country, further strengthening Ukraine’s defence capability. The radars for Ukrainian air defence protect lives and we are proud to be able to deliver much needed equipment at short notice.”
TRML-4D uses the latest Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar technology with multiple digitally shaped beams. It is capable of detecting, tracking and classifying various types of aerial targets, with a focus on small, fast and low-flying and/or manoeuvring cruise missiles and aircraft, as well as helicopters. It ensures the rapid detection and tracking of about 1,500 targets in a radius of up to 250 km.
HENSOLDT has decades of experience with radar systems for air defence and actively drives the further development of key technologies in this field. The company’s portfolio also includes the Twinvis passive radar, the Spexer product family and radars for securing ship and air traffic. HENSOLDT supplies radars for the new frigates and corvettes of the German Navy, for airspace surveillance and for approach control at airfields of the German Armed Forces, among others.
